"Metropolitan" in the title must refer to H. and C. Davis and Co's "Metropolitan" Gas Stove since a list of awards won by the company for the stove is on page 48.
In the unsigned preface Mrs page says, "The contents [of this book] are a reproduction of lectures given by me in various parts of England." She gives her address as 10 Lambourn Road, Clapham.

Grammatically incorrect, the title ends with a comma: "School of Cookery,".
Printed on the binding is "Fourth edition.... Revised and enlarged." This edition was probably published in 1889 since not only is there a date stamp, "10 Jul. 1889", on the binding of this copy but there is also the inscription "H. Stoper July 16. 1889." written below the stamp.
This entry is compiled from a photocopy of the binding and title-page supplied by the book's owner.
